High Fruit Production in California
Why Pendolino Olive Trees?
Early-ripening fruit for light, delicate oil production is just a click away with the Tuscan-native and Californnia-grown Pendolino Olive Tree. And though it’s a slower grower than other varieties, the Pendolino is easy-to-maintain and perfect for acclimating into your California landscape since it's grown in the Golden State.
When they’re planted in the ground, Pendolino Olive Trees reach 20 to 30 feet in height, but when they’re container-planted, they remain smaller in stature (especially with judicial pruning) for season-to-season growth. They are partially self-fertile, but we do recommend a pollinator for greatest production, including the Leccino and Maurino Olive Trees.

Planting & Care
1. Planting: To start, plant your Pendolino Olive in full sun (6 to 8 hours of sunlight each day) and well-drained soil for best results. And we recommend using a pollinator for the Pendolino – the Leccino, Pendolino and Frantoio are good options for best fruiting and higher production. The Pendolino is also known as the “universal pollinator” for other olive varieties, which makes it particularly valuable in your garden.
Whether you plant your Pendolino in a container or in the ground, dig a hole twice as wide as the root ball. Place it inside the hole and backfill soil, tamping down as you do. Finally, water to settle the roots.
2. Watering: Water your young Pendolino Olive Tree each day, especially when the weather warms up in the spring. If you’re not sure when to water, simply check your soil. When the soil is dry down to the first two inches (use your finger to check), it’s time to water the tree. Once it’s established, monthly deep watering or light weekly watering for your tree will suffice.
3. Pruning: During the first few years, only minimal pruning is needed for your Pendolino. However, for indoor trees, pruning regulates fruit production and shapes the tree to your desired size, making harvests easier.
4. Fertilizing: Fertilizing with a nitrogen-based blend is recommended for increased fruit production – fertilize until your Pendolino starts bearing olives.
5. Harvesting: If you’re wanting to harvest naturally black olives for table use, pick from your Pendolino in November. If you need green olives, harvest from your tree September. Your olives will be amazing either way!
